I think you are right it is like the ever present elephant in the room. You would think Can-am would have gotten the message by now and would have addressed it. Maybe the QE does I do not personally know, but they really should take steps to squash the well known dragging anchor that the Visco-lok is to their sales. Yes, I really do think it affects their sales, especially to the performance crowd and that is the crowd the Maverick is built for.Viso lok is the read headed step child no one wants to talk about lol, I can see some type of riders having issues with it, but after seeing the video you posted I'm 90% sure ill be fine with it since I dont do any kind of technical rock crawling. Most of my area that I prefer I can keep a good pace, with some jumps and whoops.
